Goebbels was only the top of the Nazi propaganda apparatus. It extended down to every corner of the country. Speakers were a major part of the system. They could be mobilized on short notice, and could be a little more open about some issues than the press.
They needed to be informed, and the party’s Reichspropagandaleitung put out a variety of publications to assist speakers. The one I find most interesting is the Redner-Schnellinformation (Speaker Express Information) which provided them with material they were expected to put to immediate use. Although the material had nothing all that confidential (despite the claims that it was “strictly confidential”), it provides a window into the specific content of Nazi propaganda at various times.
The first issue I’ve seen is from September 1941, although since that is #19 there were numerous earlier issues. The last issue I’ve seen is from February 1944.
Today I’m adding six new issues, including interesting ones on the Russian murder of thousands of Polish officers at Katyn, training sessions for party members, and the loss of Sicily.
I have now translated all the issues I have access to (with two exceptions that I think of less interest). Should you know of others I’ve not yet found, please let me know.
